Happy 17th!
Lens: Pentax K-3 Camera: Tamron 28-75 f2.8 XR Di Photo Location: Troms, Norway

The 17th of may is Norway's constitution day. As such I spent most of it running around with my student orchestra, playing music and taking pictures.

That's a great tradition--both the parade and your annual posts. I think my favorite is the last, of the flautist, though he probably should be beaten about the head and shoulders two, three times a day until he reaches maturity. (Repeat application as necessary.)

Thanks! Yeah, that's my favourite too. He's a good friend of mine but honestly, you're kinda right

The rainbow flag is the LGBTQ+ flag, just like in the rest of the world. We met the gay pride movement right before the parade

No, no it isn't. We still have excellent spring skiing, which usually lasts into june, and you'll notice that it is, in fact snowing in picture 3.

Yes I noticed! I have been to Tromsø a couple of times and the last time was in march a few years ago. The amount of snow and people skiing was impressive! On our way back from Sommerøya we even had to stop for a big avalanche (which killed one person). I will see how much snow is left in august when I have a short stop over in Tromsø on my way up north.
